Self catering Martinique
Self catering holidays
Hundreds of people wander around the covered market stalls in Fort-de-France everyday. All the flavours, colours and smells of Martinique are present. Known as the "spice market", shoppers can buy everything required to prepare the delicious local dishes.
Discover the famous cristophines (pear squash) that are good in gratins, and let yourself be surprised by the taste of the sweet potato, which looks more like a chestnut than a potato. Mangos, bananas, coconuts and other exotic fruits will satisfy those with a sweet tooth.
Many events are organised at the market, such as the acras (fritter) festival.
Discover the secrets of making rum, the key ingredient of your Martinique style punch. The Trois-Rivières Plantation, located not far from the sea, presents an outing filled with discoveries in the sugar cane fields.
Excluding the 600 hectares of the property, the public can take a guided quad bike tour and visit the manufacturing plant. A rum tasting session will conclude the visit.
Fruit of the hard work of the horticulturist, Jean-Philippe Thoze, the Jardin de Balata is organised around a family home with a typical creole architecture. In this garden, the horticulturist has been able to let his passions run wild by taking on numerous influences from all around the world. The project brings together a rare collection of exotic plants for a result that is both subtle and grandiose.
